Climate Resilient Infrastructure
This project will develop new, structurally efficient and climate resilient concrete technologies for the Queensland Department of Transport and Main Road. These enabling technologies will future-proof Queensland’s marine infrastructure and transport systems, and build the resilience of Queensland’s regional communities to natural disasters. This will be achieved by systematic design optimisation of critical boating infrastructure, manufacturing and testing of large-scale prototypes, and logistics for field installation and monitoring. Technical specifications and recommendations for the effective and safe design, manufacture and installation of GFRP reinforced boating infrastructures will be drafted for approval and use by the Queensland TMR and other transport authorities.
